Smith County Man Found In Woods

After finding the body of an East Texas man Monday, investigators believe he was trying to run from them. Investigators found 26 year old Jerry Wayne Mayfield, Jr.  off County Road 3104, that's near Highway 271. Family members say Mayfield rode his dirt bike into the woods after seeing Smith County Sheriff's deputies because he thought they were coming after him. However, authorities say they were just in the area serving a warrant. An autopsy has been ordered.
